Coming back to Seattle after a few years

Hi everyone, if my question is redundant just let me know. I've used CH in the past and gotten great results.

As I said in the title its been a few years since I've been down in Seattle, I'm a chef/teacher in Vancouver BC, and kinda wondering what I've been missing these last years. I love the Seattle food scene and have had some amazing meals there.

Been to in the past: Paseo, Salumi, most of Tom Douglas's places (PK rocks!), La Carta de Oaxaca, Top Pot, Matt's, Macrina Bakery, and a few others that escape me right now. I guess you could say I'm a fan of hole-in-the-wall type places, but also enjoy more upscale casual as well.

The list for now? ...looking at Revel, Quinn's, Spur, Walrus and Carpenter, Sitka and Spruce, Book Bindery, also going to SAM restaurant for chicken and waffles on Sunday brunch (the wife has a craving).

Is this a good list? Wouldn't mind hitting a few of these at least. Does anyone have anymore recommendations in the Downtown/Belltown area?

My other question... where are some great places for drinks happy hour or otherwise? I love the food scene in my Vancouver as well, but one thing that the U.S. always does better than us here North of the border is booze. Looking for some really good drinking places or somewhere with a good craft beer scene.

Let me know Seattle!
